characters. in this case obama is considered to be the lead character. congress is kind of this nebulous entity. i think it might be more effective for media -- for the media, for the white house, to explain more of congress' intransience instead of naming just congress. but naming real names. mitch mcconnell, john boehner, et cetera. >> even when you start talking about the leaders, what strikes me about john boehner over the last couple of years is he is sort of, to me, a uniquely unpowerful speaker. he has the title, they give him a chauffer, all the perks that come along with the job but we were talking about this in the gun segment, when it comes to actually doing what the green lantern people ask president obama to do, crack heads together, he can't do that to his own republican conference these days but he's led by them much more than he leads them. there's this whole other wrinkle which is probably difficult to explain, too. i want to get into -- i sort of teased the marureen dowd thing. it makes me laugh so i want to share it with you. are baked with brown rice and sweet potato!
